India condemns Kabul terror attack

India on Saturday strongly condemned the latest terrorist attack in Kabul and offered to help to make arrangements for treatment of the injured.

At least 95 people were killed and 158 others were injured when a bomb in an ambulance exploded in the Afghan capital on Saturday.

"India strongly condemns the barbaric and dastardly terrorist attacks in Kabul today that targeted innocent civilians and the wounded under treatment. This follows the cowardly terror attack on the children and civilians in Jalalabad on January 24," the Ministry of External Affairs said in a statement issued in New Delhi.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the latest terror attack in Kabul.

"There can be no justification for such reprehensible attacks. The perpetrators of these attacks and their supporters should be brought to justice," said Raveesh Kumar, spokesperson of the MEA.

"India stands in solidarity with the government and the people of Afghanistan at this difficult times of mindless violence and terror imposed on them," said Kumar.

"We convey our heartfelt condolences to the next of kins of victims of these terror attacks and pray for speedy recovery to those injured. India stands ready to extend all possible assistance, including for treatment of those injured," he added.
